PITTSBURGH, October 19, 2018 – The American Cable Association, USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA, and WISPA yesterday filed a joint intervenors brief with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Mozilla Corporation v. Federal Communications Commission.
The following statement is for attribution to ACA, USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA, and WISPA:
“We believe the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom Order correctly classified broadband as an information service and lawfully preempted state and local regulation of broadband. Broadband providers are united in protecting the open Internet for all consumers. Congress should ultimately resolve this issue with a national framework to enshrine the open Internet principles we all support.”
About the American Cable Association: Based in Pittsburgh, the American Cable Association is a trade organization representing more than 700 smaller and medium-sized, independent companies that provide broadband, phone and video services to nearly 8 million customers primarily located in rural and smaller suburban markets across America.
